10-Year Anniversary: Our *classic* 2010-era Swackett app lovingly recreated for 2020. Requires macOS Mojave or later.

• As seen on the TODAY Show (NBC)
• Apple Selected "New Apps and Games We Love" (June 2018)
• The #1 weather app for the Mac in 55 countries (June 2018)

A different kind of weather app.

• How warm or cold will it be today?
• Will it rain or snow today?
• Will I feel comfortable outside today?
• How windy will it be today?
• What should I take with me when I leave the house today?

Swackett has been answering these questions for you — visually — at a glance — with beautiful, clear imagery since 2010.

Swackett presents thoughtfully crafted people symbols (called “peeps”) who always appear appropriately dressed for the weather; plus beautifully crafted weather data displays, charts, satellite imagery (where available) and other visuals to present your weather forecast with humor, precision and clarity.

Pro Version without Pro Features

I purchased tis Mac app because it was supposed to have radar for tracking weather. I paid the fee and dowloaded the app to find it does not include radar.

Developer Response ,

There are three levels of radar on *every screen* — we're not sure why you would say there is no radar. Please reach out to ur support site — we can help: https://sweaterjacketorcoat.com/support/

Update - Pro features now working

Update: Swackett tech support has been very responsive to my issue regarding Pro features not being enabled and that issue has been resolved. I would rate Swackett support five stars for their efforts in getting that issue taken care of. I still have an issue with low resolution radar maps, but I’m hopeful that will be resolved as well. It is clear that Swackett is committed to supporting and improving this product.

Just purchased and installed V5.1.1 expecting to have all the Pro features available. However, none of the Pro features are available in the current download. I have submitted a support ticket regarding this to Swackett. I recommend not purchasing this until the Pro features are enabled as advertised. I will update this review pending the response from Swackett Support.

Very Nice!

I am glad I was not put off by the negative comments. The interface is well thought out (very good looking as well), the auto location works correctly and the data is accurate for my location (Houston). It provides a wide array of data in a format that is easy to navigate. I am a weather fanatic and use several apps on my iPhone and iPad but was having a hard time locating a nice app for my new Macbook Air (I have finally abandoned chromebooks for a real computer). After trying several apps and not really liking any of them I paid the $5 for Swackett and, hooray, my search is over.
